Our tour with Roy Orozco was a definite highlight of our First trip to Costa Rica. Roy came highly recommended by other guides and we felt so lucky to have him lead us on our nature walk through the park. Roy is friendly, professional and patient. It is obvious he loves his job. We would have missed so much had... More

We ended up on a tour with Roy on recommendation from another guide. We were thoroughly impressed with him. He has a deep love for nature especially birds. He is calm gentle soul and is super patient taking time to teach us about what we were seeing. I actually wish we would have met him sooner and would have had... More

I attended one of Roys tours with a group from Canada in March 2015. The whole process from questions prior to attending, to the actual tour was an absolute pleasure. Roy collected us from the Airport Hotel, San Jose and from there on the entire trip was just superb! Nothing was left out and the entire trip was run like... More

We had Roy to ourselves at Manuel Antonio Park. He is friendly, well-spoken, and thoroughly knowledgeable. We saw two- and three-toed sloths, squirrel monkeys, capuchin monkeys, and a variety of bats, birds, amphibians, and insects. I enjoy birds and was thrilled to discover that Roy is an avid watcher. When he spotted a particular hummingbird, he pulled out his tablet... More

This was my second year in a row booking Roy Orozco for a photography tour. This year, I was with another friend who is a wildlife/ photography guide in the Pacific Northwest. Just as last year, the trip was amazing. Toucans, Quetzals, Hummingbirds, Honeycreepers, Tree Frogs, Sloths, Macaws…..the list is endless. Roy is such a joy to be with. Mainly... More

Roy is personable, knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. We saw monkeys, sloths, interesting lizards and colorful insects we never would have spotted on our own. Well maybe the white faced monkey who wanted one of our bags, but he had forewarned us to be on the watch. He is clearly respected by the other guides. I'd highly... More
